Clinical Manager Lisa Barnes-Metcalf developed a love of elderly care early on in her nursing career.
She trained as an RGN at Poole Hospital and later went on to become Clinical Manager at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
Before joining Colten Care Lisa was with another care provider and implemented a pressure prevention strategy to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers. She also developed a comprehensive teaching programme on care planning.
Lisa said: “Colten Care is an exciting company to work for and I am enjoying using my experience in nursing and teaching for the benefit of residents and staff.”
Outside of work, Lisa has a 10-year-old daughter and two chocolate labradors called Chunky and Barney. Along with her husband they all enjoy exploring England in their motorhome affectionately named Bertha.
